In addition, we are very proud of the family connections we have with many generations of families, students and apprentices:  Our graduate student scheme which involves full time work placement and university/work placement has been very successful with many students retained and employed full time.  Further success’ are with our apprentices of whom there are many achieving NVQ and degree level qualifications over two/three/four year schemes.

Developing standards and improving life safety in buildings:

Our Engineers are on many industry technical committees using their expertise to improve standards, develop fire strategy procedures and produce safer, more robust products and safer buildings.

At Bishopstoke we have a world leading modern test facility that is a centre of excellence within the Prysmian Group world-wide and we support many of our international affiliates in developing materials and products for their own markets and customers.

It is necessary for Prysmian to work collaboratively with industry to develop these standards, procedures and products to ensure a safer world for us all.  We welcome feedback about products and how we might change or improve, please talk us if you have any ideas you feel would benefit your projects and our industry.
